MAILS OVER ONE MILLION CATALOGS EVERY DAY USING VERY LITTLE RECYCLED PAPER

MAILS OVER 370 MILLION CATALOGS EVERY YEAR MAKING IT A LEADER IN DEFORESTATION



Printed on paper from the Canadian Boreal, a forest wilderness larger than the Brazilian Amazon. The Canadian Boreal is a key buffer protecting us from global warming and is home to billions of North Americas migrating birds, as well as grizzly bears and threatened caribou. Its being cut down at a rate of two acres a minute, 24 hours a day, mainly for paper. Victorias Secret is not satisfied with just stripping the Borealit is also destroying forests in the Southern U.S., one of the most biologically diverse regions of our country and the unfortunate source for 15% of the worlds paper.



PLEASE HELP STOP THIS MADNESS

I receive a catalogue just about every other day!
There is not another company that sends as many catalogues as Victoria's.
Some are even repeated issues in the same week.
Their Christmas catalogue was just about 200 pages, with the $10m bra.

That could be called as paper version of spam.

But it isn't exactly "state secret" that destroying nature still benefits big money.

Heck, Victoria doesn't have the market cornered on over-cataloging us.
JC Penney and Park Seed send me catalogs every time I turn around, it seems. And Land's End, and ONe Hanes Place.
Also, it is VERY hard to get them to stop them, esp. One Hanes Place.

Seems to me that someone in their infinite and short-sighted wisdom actually has "sold" exclusive purchasing rights. It's not like Victoria's Secret is just going to stomp across the border and trample all across the forest taking whatever they want. Someone sold the rights, I'll bet ! So that's were the sin has been given life in this chain of events.

Actually marketers (well, some, let me make that most) have no regard for our environment, or the company's life-line the consumer you and me, excluding them). They just want to sell at any cost.

They best part is that all those sundry costs are passed right back to the consumer, albiet by an inflated price.

That's also why the CEO's can afford to have extravagant salaries even though the corporation could be making huge losses, and the shareholders get reduced returns on THEIR investment.

Does this make any sense at all?

All of this then opens up a new can-of-worms:

Who owns natural resources, who should be given exclusive rights to "sell" those resources? Should it be someone in this generation, or from the next generation (we ought to save some for our children, and grandchildren too)...or from the current government, or...
